Road/Bell Street Drainage Improvements
The scope of work includes the removal of
approximately 400 l.f. of deteriorated 48"
diameter metal storm drain and replacement
of same with reinforced concrete pipe.
Additionally, 125 l.f. of metal storm drain
pipe under Sarno Road will be rehabilitated
by the insertion of a cure-in-place
polyethylene liner. The resulting work will
reduce street flooding conditions within the
Ixora Park Subdivision.
Swift Street Stormwater Improvements
Provide flood control by enhancing drainage
existing system, includes pipe replacement
Stormwater Master Plan Master
A stormwater master plan for the entire Crane
Creek drainage basin, including the Hickory
Ditch sub-basin, has been completed to
address flood control and water quality
issues in this area of District 5. This
study was jointly funded by St. John's River
Water Management District (SJRWMD), City of
Melbourne and Brevard County. This area in
South Brevard County includes the cities of
Melbourne and West Melbourne as well as
unincorporated Brevard County. The master
plan is being used to identify local
flooding areas and possible solutions,
identify possible best management practices
(BMPs) to improve water quality into the
Indian River Lagoon and identify
possibilities available to increase recharge
to the superficial aquifer underlying the
Widening & Babcock Street Realignment
Retrofit roadway and nearby development for
stormwater drainage and treatment
Upgrade of stormwater outfalls along Charles
Drive/Almar Subdivision. When complete, will
provide flood control and treatment by
replacing existing pipe system and
construction of detention pond.
Sherwood Drive Replacement Stormwater Pipe
When complete, reduction of ditch erosion.
Stabilize Hickory Ditch
Water quality project to stabilize ditch
resulting in reduced erosion to Crane Creek
and Indian River Lagoon including stormwater
Tallwood Subdivision Drainage
Study to define solution to street flooding
Construction of two detention ponds providing
treatment of neighborhood stormwater runoff
in an area where direct discharge to Eau
Gallie River previously existed.
Dove Street Pond
Construction of a 2.5 acre dual-stage
stormwater detention facility providing
flood control and water quality benefits.
Baffle Boxes – Installation at Yacht Basin
Water quality improvement through sediment
Wickham Park Pond Construction
City contributed to county project.
Creation of two ponds. Water quality project
treating water from the Parkway and Croton
systems. Some flood control is also being
provided to these areas.
South Melbourne & Crane Creek Drainage
Basin Flooding/Water Quality Study
Analyzed existing system’s ability to convey
stormwater by computer simulation.
Identified problem areas and recommended
flood reduction improvements. Pollutant
loading computer model identified potential
water quality improvements. Detailed
analysis of the cost effectiveness of each
recommended improvement project.
